Hi, I’m Sam!
I am a chef, clinical nutritionist, author and mentor with a Le Cordon Bleu Master of Gastronomic Tourism degree. I live on the pristine surf coast of beautiful Byron Bay, on the most eastern tip of the Australian mainland. I create spa programs for luxury hotels & health retreats worldwide, and develop signature products for the marketplace. I have been teaching food as medicine in my Byron Bay Cooking School and big city events for nearly 20 years. My other passion is mentoring women so they can shine and be in control of a life they love to lead. I started this website in 2002 to share recipes, remedies and my 30 year journey of a delicious life in food, business and healing.Go to Shop
